Ohio River Site floodplain map thumbnail Floodplain Map

According to the FEMA FIRM 390185 FIRMette, the site is located in two Flood Zones, both labeled as AE, which have two different distinctions due to the location of the Ohio River south of the site. Zone AE furthest away from the Ohio River is described as a Special Flood Hazard Area that is subject to inundation by the 1 percent annual chance of flood. Zone AE has base flood elevations determined.

Floodway areas in Zone AE near the Ohio River are defined as the floodway in the channel of a stream plus any adjacent floodplain areas that must be kept free of encroachment so that the 1 percent annual chance flood can be carried out without substantial increases in flood heights.
